    I have been working at Lotus F1 Team full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    F1 has the fastest turnaround of projects anywhere in engineering, so you will be designing components on Monday and see them racing on Sunday. The structure is flat, teams are small and there are few meetings. You will get lots done and lots of autonomy. Your colleagues will be world class and really help you to develop as an engineer.

    Cons

    The hours can be brutal at times and there is a natural repetition of the kinds of projects that you do each year unless you specifically push to change. Some aspects of the development process are divided between departments (such as design and stress) so you will not be working on every aspect of a design independently. Lots of CAD time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more proactive in moving people around onto different projects to give them variety rather than waiting for them to ask. Sometimes more transparency about the current events within the company would be appreciated rather than reading about things on Autosport first!

    I worked at Lotus F1 Team as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Get to know what's happening in F1 field, get to see drivers, free races. Very dynamic working environment.

    Cons

    Good for short term experience, but most of the factoreis are located in country side, not easy commute, little opportunities to get promoted.

    Neutral Outlook
